Tired of their friends being ASSassinated - LOL! Is that what they're selling you on Fox these days? You are comically out of touch. Cops don't even make the top 25 most dangerous jobs in America. Studies show this is the SAFEST TIME IN THE HISTORY OF THE USA to be a cop.
Read it and weep, Odorous...
1. Tree trimmers and pruners
This groundskeeping job has the highest rate of work-caused deaths and ranks 76th for nonfatal workplace injuries. The profession's fatality rate is 21 times higher than for the typical American job. The most common causes were falls, falling tree limbs and accidents involving equipment such as saws.
About 43,000 people work as commercial pilots, earning an average of $115,080 a year, according to federal statistics. This photo shows a small cargo plane that crashed into a Chicago home in 2014.
2. Commercial pilots
This does not include pilots of passenger planes for major airlines like you might use to travel for work or vacation. These folks navigate planes or helicopters to carry cargo and, in less common and less hazardous roles, lead air tours or navigate air ambulances. Nearly all deaths and injuries were caused by catastrophic crashes, which is why the nonfatal injury rate for the profession ranked low, at 297th.
3. Farm and ranch animal workers (including aquaculture)
People who tend to livestock big and small have the third-highest rate of deaths from their job, or 15 times higher than the typical American's work. Injury rates are not well tracked in federal labor statistics because people who are self-employed or work on farms with fewer than 11 employees are not required to complete the agency’s annual survey.
About 49,000 people work in logging, earning an average of $46,000 a year, according to federal statistics.
4. Logging workers
The fourth-highest job fatality rate was reported for logging workers, who have led the national rankings in some years. The 2021 death rate was 13 times higher than the typical American job, and the nonfatal injury rate ranked 191st. Contact with equipment, falling objects and falls led the list of injury causes.
About 130,000 people install roofs, earning an average of $49,000 a year, according to federal statistics.
Roofers had the fifth-highest rate of work-caused deaths and ranks 108th for nonfatal workplace injuries. That fatality rate is almost 10 times higher than the typical American job, and the injury rate is almost twice as high. Once again, falls are a leading cause of injury and death – and a one that is often preventable with the proper use of safety harnesses.
About 26,000 people supervise farms, commercial fishing operations or forestry work, earning an average of $54,000 a year, according to federal statistics.
6. First-line supervisors of farming, fishing and forestry workers
These jobs often feature overseeing people who work with heavy equipment, dangerous tools, hazardous weather and large, moving objects or animals – and being hands-on with the work. So it’s little surprise this occupation category reported the sixth-highest fatal-injury rate in America, or seven times higher than the typical job. The rate of nonfatal illness and injury ranked 216th.
About 26,000 people run heavy equipment in agricultural industries, earning an average of $36,000 a year, according to federal statistics.
7. Agricultural equipment operators
If you’re at the controls of big equipment in an agricultural setting – tilling, planting, harvesting, feeding, herding – this is the job classification you get from the federal government. It has the seventh-highest fatal-injury rate in America, one that’s more than five times higher than the typical job. Injury rates are not well tracked in federal labor statistics because people who are self-employed or work on farms with fewer than 11 employees are not required to complete the agency’s annual survey.
About 2 million people drive tractor trailers and other large haulers, earning an average of $50,000 a year, according to federal statistics.
8. Heavy and tractor-trailer truck drivers
This is the technical classification for what people commonly imagine when they hear “truck driver.” These are folks driving big rigs – more than 26,000 pounds – to haul cargo from place to place. This job reported the eighth-highest fatal-injury rate in 2021 and ranked 65th for nonfatal injuries. Wrecks were the leading cause of death, but falls and overexertion were much more common injury causes.
About 24,000 people work with heavy equipment in underground mines, earning an average of $58,000 a year, according to federal statistics.
9. Underground mining machine operators
This is the first time in recent years this job category has been included in federal rankings of fatal injuries because fewer than 20,000 people worked in these roles or fewer than four people died. But in 2021, 10 people died from the job, resulting in the ninth-highest rate of worker deaths. The nonfatal injury rate ranked 114th in 2018, the last year with available federal data.
About 35,000 maintain and repair farm equipment, earning an average of $47,000 a year, according to federal statistics.
10. Farm equipment mechanics and service technicians
This title is assigned to people who repair or maintain farm machinery and vehicles, such as tractors, combines, irrigation systems and dairy equipment, but does not include mechanics who work generally on trucks or diesel engines. It has the 10th-highest fatal-injury rate in America, or about four times higher than the typical job. The nonfatal injury rate ranked 115th.
Cops' friends being ASSassinated... what a riot. 😂

And you missed several that your sheeple sites don't list. I was just giving you why NYPD officers were leaving. So fuk you very much. You've never spent any of your shallow, miserable life with any threat at all. You've been protected by your "owner" to keep you 6 year old butt clean from client to client, along with your mama (without teeth).

So easy to tell when OD just got his ass handed to him - he drops the argument and starts attacking your family. Facts are facts, OD - the NY cops who quit are a bunch of pussy snowflakes who had their ass broomsticks and license to kill taken away. That's why they're quitting - they're not allowed to freely assault and murder the NY citizenry anymnore. IOW - the People are demanding they either do the job they're supposed to do - or go get a job they're actually qualified to do - like policing up cigarette butts. The good news - maybe you can pick up a little pocket change teaching them how to do that since you're the expert. 😘
PS: Did you get that? Cops... "policing" up cigarette butts...
